Data for gas-phase species are obtained from ab initio electronic structure calculations. In most cases,
the data were obtained from Bond Additivity Correction calculations (at either
the MP4(SDTQ) or G2 level of theory). Data from coupled-cluster calculations and from literature sources are
also included in cases where the BAC methods are either not applicable or have not yet been developed.

at a specific level of theory, not a critical review of the literature.
